  • Tarnish or Corrosion of Copy Chrome

    I have been able to obtain great finishes on my copy chromed items, but I haven't been able to keep them from tarnishing in outdoor environments. I have tried several protective polishes and waxes, and to date have had no success keeping the surfaces from deteriorating.

    From all my reading, I have gotten the impression that copy chrome, though a different colour than true chrome would be as impervious to the elements. Obviously this is not so, and it can't be used for outside applications.

    Am I correct im my observations, and will I be forced to purchace the true chrome kit to get the results I was expecting.

    I have your exact problem, and I found the Copy Chrome will tarnish if you even look at it the wrong way. I would have used tin had I known.
